"Kingdom Come" Review

"Why Aftermath would sit on an album like this and leave it locked up in the vaults is anyone's guess. Compton veteran, King T has been holding it down for the West since forever and his decision to join up with the "Quincy Jones Of Rap" equals one of the most slept-on gems to come out of the West Coast since Above The Law's "Uncle Sam's Curse". Not only does this album feature production from Dr. Dre but also such heavy-hitting producers as DJ Quik, Fredwreck, and Battlecat to name a few. With guest appearances from Dre, Quik, W.C., Too Short, Shaquille O'Neal, Baby S, Tray Dee, and many others, this album bumps from start to finish. Opening with a hilarious intro from Ice T, "Kingdom Come" is what most West Coast albums should be. Dr. Dre's prescene is felt heavily on this album with laid-back cuts such as "Where's T?" and the groovy "Monay". T's remake of "6 N Da Mornin" over Dre's "Zoom" instrumental makes for some good storytelling. Other selections such as "Stay Down" and "Squeeze Yo Ballz" featuring a nice collaboration with Baby S show that even though Dre's not supplying the production work doesn't mean that the King is sleeping. "Let's Make A V" is trademark DJ Quik as he drops a dope verse and even more impressive production. All in all, "Kingdome Come" is no "Doggystyle" but it is certainly a very refreshing change from the usual pop crossover stuff you hear on the radio. It's too bad that Dre never took the time to release this on his own label because it is most definetly a banging album. If you can find it in any record store, I advise you to pick it up."
What was Dre Thinking???????

"Does ANYONE know why Dre never released this on Aftermath???
Dudes, this is a tight cd with Dre's masterpiece beats. Why on earth would Dre put so much work into a kickass cd, pay King T to Rap, and never release the cd?!!!
Much respect to Dre and all, but WTF???. It's got a similar feel to Chronic 2001. This is 100% Dr.Dre before he started producing for East Coast rappers. Definitely more of a West coast feel than his previous works, including with Snoop.
Oh yeah, and King T kills the mic too!
Whack cover though. wTF? A Turkey?"
King T is back!

"This album was origionally supposed to have dropped on Dr. Dre's Aftermath label, but unfortunatly this never got through and the album ended up recieving far too little attention.
The album is bangin, with production from Fred Wreck, Dr. Dre, Battlecat, DJ Quik (!),Budda and Mike Dean.
And with other appearences consisting of Ice-T, Playa Hamm, MC Ren, Baby S, El DeBarge, Frost, Tray Deee, Too Short and Shaq there os no shortage of top-notch side artists either!
This is a must-have for any westcoast rap fan..."
